What is up with me??? I promise I have been reading, but I've had so much studying and stuff to do, I haven't had the time to write. Since I love to write, that means something. I let you in on a little secret, I've had a struggle with my reading. I got Bored...I NEVER GET BORED of reading. But I tried to do something that wasn't very smart for ME (not everyone is like this). I stopped reading what I wanted to read, and took suggestions from too many people. Not so much people in blog land, but more in my personal life. I do better if I really feel passionate about what I'm reading. I read for my moods. If I'm feeling sad and depressed, I'll read a mystery or maybe Barbara Pym. If I'm feeling lazy, I'll read something about a dancer or athlete. If I'm feeling smart I'll read a book about science. I read to learn, to experience new things. So, I'm back to reading from my list of books I want to read.

I will be soon writing a review of: Barbara Pym's "An Unsuitable Attachment" and Martin Cruz Smith's "Wolves Eat Dog". I'm reading at the moment a book about Martha Graham and the letters of Richard Feynman. So I promise to be back soon!

I know exactly what you mean about the bored thing. I was feeling very similar. I'm also back on track now and it feels good.

Thrilled to have you back, Dawn, I have missed you! Yes, from time to time I, too,will read a book just because it comes highly recommended, but in the end, no book reads as well as a book that I pick out for myself.

Now that you're back, I so hope you will stay! :)

When I'm bored reading a book, I usually don't give it a second chance, i just give up. Life is too short! I do try and read few more pages but if I keep being bored that's it. After all I read for pleasure not for knowledge or to please somebody else:) I hope you're back on the track now, good luck with your reading.
